Emily and Tommy 01/02/2015

I just wanted to send an email to say a huge thank you to you and the whole old thorns team for the most amazing wedding we could have hoped for. The day was truly perfect. The venue was amazing. The food was fabulous and the staff brilliant. The dj was also great and played music that was perfect for us. We truly couldn’t have asked for more it really was the best day of our lives. Natalie was beyond brilliant. We really can’t thank her enough.  My dad was particularly impressed with her service level. (And it takes a lot to impress him!!!) Nothing was too much and she was there whenever we needed her. She really was so amazing as was the lady who helped me when I got a bit teary before going in the room!! It honestly makes me so happy to know what an amazing time everyone had. Please send my thanks onto everyone. Your help and patience in the process was hugely appreciated. I’m actually sad it’s all over!! All the guests said what a lovely venue it was. I can’t speak highly enough of you all. Our thanks again to you all.

Gemma and Darren   17/01/2015

I just wanted to send you a email to thank you and everyone at old thorns for making our wedding day so special.

You were great answering all my questions I had and just made everything so smooth for us.

Natalie and the team were fantastic on the day and please could you pass on our thanks to them.

We received such a fantastic service from them all and Natalie was great in reassuring me on the day and made sure we were where we were supposed to be etc everything went to plan and there were no hiccups.

Also a big thank you for catering for the people with special dietary requirements- especially the gluten free people they couldn’t praise the food highly enough and said a lot of places don’t cater as well for gluten free people.

Once again thank you to everyone who played a part in our wedding day.


 Mr and Mrs Paton 17/10/2014

We just wanted to say thank you so much for everything you all did in relation to. Planning and making our special day so amazing! We couldn’t have asked for a better venue and a better team to help us! Everything went exactly to plan and I didn’t have to think about anything on the day other than enjoying it!

I can’t recommend you all high enough!!! Thank you again so much – we will never forget everything you have done for us!


Lyndsey and Lee Mullinder 01/11/2013

Sorry this email is a week late but I didn’t want to forget to send it all together.

I just wanted to send a little message to thank you and all the staff there at Old Thorns for making our wedding day last Fri an amazing one.
Everything ran like clockwork. Justina was fantastic and on hand whenever we needed her.

The day didn’t run completely as planned as we ended up having a couple of medical emergencies, but the way the staff handled this was amazing.
All of the staff on that day, did extra and above what they would usually have too, so please can you pass on our sincere thanks.

I’d be grateful if you could forward this on to your manager/owner, so they can be proud of there staff. It’s not often people get thanked for doing a good job, so I wanted to make sure that didn’t go un noticed.

Thank you personally as well for helping me plan the big day. It truly was a day to remember.

Thank you so much we got married on the 31st Aug 2013 and thought the service from your staff from  was amazing. Shauna went above and beyond for us. Everything was amazing even the lovely lad who took us up in the buggy to have our pictures done was really helpful. Had my makeup done with the spa who came to my room and were fantastic. Even reception were helpful. Everything was well thought through and had a high standard without being pretentious. We got complements from our guests who said things like, they thought we had the perfect wedding and it’s the best wedding they’ve been too from start to finish.

Just a quick note to say thank you to the wedding ‘team’ and making our day so special last Saturday.
The weather played a massive part, but also your own professionalism, planning, control and precision on the day made it complete.
A special thanks go to Stuart (who was excellent) and the staff on the day – we were able to enjoy our day without any concerns whatsoever.
We really appreciate the service we received and would recommend the venue to anyone.
